The Rays are about to eliminate the Bitch Sox from the playoffs (thank you Tampa) and two big contributors to this season are Jason Bartlett and Matt Garza. These two former Twins have played a big role for Tampa this year and it makes me wonder, Does anyone regret the trade now?
I know the Twins would never admit to any regrets but do any Twins fans feel that maybe the Twins got the short end of the stick, not just for this year but for the life of the trade? It’s hard for me not to feel that way b/c even after the trade most of us still feel the Twins need a shortstop (Bartlett) and even though the rotation was good this year, wouldn’t it be nice if we had a hard throwing pitcher like (Garza) on the Twins, allowing maybe Perkins to be moved to the pen or traded for another need.
There have been a few posts about how the Twins should move Delmon Young. For me, after the error in Toronto, I’d prefer not to see Pridie. As I posted in one of the last games, I have yet to see Pridie NOT fail for the Twins. That leaves Harris as the only player the Twins got that many feel happy with, and that is just as a platoon player at 3B.
I wonder if this is how the Giants fans felt after they got AJ from the Twins? I know there is nothing that can be done now and hindsight never helped anyone but for discussions sake I’m throwing this out there. I think the Twins got robbed, I just hope the front office can turn their lemons into lemonade.
